I have become the type of person I am today for better or worse because of the current ways I deal with conflict. These techniques (below) are not written in stone and for certain conflicts such as politics I usually go hand to hand yet overall, I believe they make up my personality. Honestly, I also use these techniques for any over-stressed event and/or negative feelings that could be occurring in my life as well. They are in order of most used. What and which order would you put your list in.
- AVOIDANCE- I try to ignore conflict at the first cut
- DIVERSION- This is where I escape from what is stressing me out and/or utilize the negative energy G-D willing for good.
- INDIRECTLY- Tactfully I try to find a way to tell my story to those who I am having a conflict with on in a way that they might accept or understand.
- DIRECTLY BUT QUICKLY- This is my most recent addition to the list. I will tell you what I think directly but still hopefully with some tact and then go back to diversion.
